While many CPU (actually multipurpose SoC) in sat boxes support 1394, I saw for last 20 years only one attempt -dish DVR921 with 'dishwire' ; it was removed during first months of production. Reason never been exposed to public. Could be failed attempt to avoid royalties and unsuccessful SW development in-house...
